All About UI Animation and Interactions
When you use a digital product, are you noticing that there are a lot of “moving” elements like the launch screen of a mobile application or the delightful clicking sound of a successfully completed action followed by a small movement in the button. All of this is not by accident – they are by design. Animation started in Hollywood, but it has now come to digital product design. As a designer ready for the challenges of modern design, we should be prepared to design for animation as well. In this course, we will take you through the process of designing animation in the digital product context as well as best practices of collaborating with developers to make your animation design come to life.
